Along with Eden Hazard, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the joint-top scorer in the Premier League so far this season with seven goals.
The attacker has often had to play out wide for the Gunners this season and that was the case against Crystal Palace on Sunday, with Alexandre Lacazette starting up front.
Aubameyang managed to find the net again, with his strike from close range in the 56th minute putting Arsenal 2-1 in front.

One fan responded to the tweet by questioning why, in such circumstances, head coach Unai Emery elected to take Aubameyang off – @rajamudaikhsan wrote: ‘then why are you replacing him? Why not let him score again?’.
Aubameyang, somewhat controversially, retweeted the tweet, perhaps expressing his frustration at being taken off.
Prior to the game against Palace Aubameyang had been named amongst the substitutes for the Premier League clashes against Fulham and Leicester.
